We took the 9 AM 75 mins Palm+Burj-al-Arab trip on 11-Sep-14. Our boat captain/guide was William. He shared with us all the facts/history for the sightseeing spots around - JBR, Atlantis, Burj al Arab, and even spectacular Palm Jumeirah Hotels and Yachts owned by the rich and the famous. All told with a good sense of humor.The ride was appropriately... More

This is the fourth time I've been on the yellow boat tour and all the staff are most professional and they make sure you have a really enjoyable time. The 90 minute trip takes you through the marina and the 75 minute trip is a shorter course through the marina but the same time on the water around the Palm,... More

We went on the 75 minute trip from the Marina to the Palm to Burj Al Arab. It's good value especially if you buy the Entertainer book for Dubai and use the bogof voucher. You are supplied with life jacket and water and settle down for a fast ride to the Palm, stop for pictures at Atlantis and the boat... More

This will be the third time I have done this. It's a great way to spend an hour and a half. By going out onto the Persian Gulf you get views of Dubai skyline and Atlantis & Burj al Arab that you don't get from the land. Our guide, Kevin, was great - very knowledgeable and with a great sense... More

Extremely disappointed by the attitude of Dubai Yellow Boats with regard 'late show' (in their opinion!). 4 of us were booked on the 10.30 am tour and arrived at the Yellow Boats site at exactly that time, after being driven around in circles by an incompetent taxi driver who was unable to find their location. The Yellow Boats representative told... More

Great fun. Totally enjoyable experience and an excellent way to see around the marina, Burj etc. Hint - go for the 90 minute option. Staff are professional, knowledgeable and are a credit to the company.

Kevin took myself and my fiancé on a trip around the Dubai marina, the palm and Burj al Arab. He was very friendly, informative and seemed to genuinely enjoy his job. Nothing was too much trouble and he stopped to allow us to take plenty of photos. We were the only ones on the tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. It... More

Definitely a must in Dubai. You get a tour from the water and get to see all the magnificent hotels and landmarks of Dubai from the water (including the impressive Palm). The guide and the driver were very friendly and stopped every now and again and imparted their local knowledge. They gave us a few good tips on things to... More
